Just FYI:

This Date In Sox History:

Much has been made of the accomplishments of the 2005 Sox pitching staff and deservedly so...however they still have a ways to go to match some of the things pulled off by the incredible Sox pitching staff’s of the time period from 1963 through 1967.

Case in point July 5, 1964

Juan Pizarro and Joe Horlen fire back to back complete game shutouts as the Sox take a pair from the Indians 2-0 and 5-0 at Comiskey Park.

The double dip runs the Sox team consecutive scoreless innings streak to 27 because the afternoon before Gary Peters fired a complete game shutout allowing three hits in a 4-0 win.

That’s three consecutive complete game shutouts in a little over 24 hours! Now that’s the way to head into the All Star Break!

Happy 4th of July everyone and 'go you White Sox!!'

Bring back the 15" mound.

Seriously, the mid 60's were my mid-teen years. Man, those pitching staffs were something to behold.

These days a team with pitching like that could win 110 games easily.

Nellie, you are so right! I was a youngun' of 10 years in `67; probably the prime years for getting hooked on a sports team (thanks Grandpa and Dad!). It was a completely different game back then (duh!), and the youthful members of WSI excluded, I don't think that 1-0 and 3-2 games would hold the interest of today's music video on demand, satellite radio kids. My tongue-in-cheek handle notwithstanding, my heroes back then were Gary Peters and Joe Horlen; my second favorite team was the Cardinals, strictly because of Bob Gibson. I wonder how those arms would fare against the juicers of today, though...

Ed,
Thanks for the link--I was a kid again for awhile. By the way,from that same page, here is an example of why I hate the Yankees: June 21, 1964 (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/chronology/1964JUNE.stm#day21): The Yankees move into first place by eight percentage points over Baltimore, as they outpitch the White Sox to win 2–0 and 2–1. Mickey Mantle (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/M/Mantle_Mickey.stm) and Elston Howard (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/H/Howard_Elston.stm) home runs win it 2–0 for Jim Bouton (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/B/Bouton_Jim.stm) in the opener against White Sox pitcher Juan Pizarro, and an error wins the nightcap 2–1 in the 17th. The Yankees sweep 4, giving up just one run in 41 innings, and take nine games from Chicago in 11 days. :angry::angry::angry::angry::angry:

The game has changed.It would be great to see Beuhrle,Garcia
and Garland pull off this feat,but it very unlikely I will see this
happen in my lifetime.My dad used to talk about Sox home runs
as "White Owl wallops".White Owl was a cigar company that
sponsored the Sox' back in the 50's and 60's.

Have a safe July 4th.Here's hoping for 2 types of fireworks:

A Lou Pinella meltdown and a White Sox Winner.

Seriously, the mid 60's were my mid-teen years. Man, those pitching staffs were something to behold.And the knees-to-shoulder strikezone. These were truly the golden years of pitching, but comparing to today's game is a little unfair because of those differences.

Holy crap. Can you imagine Buehrle, Garland and Garcia with 15" mound? :o:
